We strive to maintain the reliability, accuracy, completeness and currency of the personal information we hold and to protect its privacy and security.

We hold the information we collect from you in electronic form held on a secure server protected by multi-layer password and encryption software. Hard copy documents are scanned and stored in the same location and then destroyed or de-identified.
We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others.
We may need to provide your information to our credit licensee e.g. for administration and supervision activities, contractors who supply services to us e.g. to handle mailings on our behalf, or to other companies in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganisation, dissolution or similar event.

We may also provide your information to others if we are required to do so by law or under some unusual other circumstances which the Privacy Act permits.
